"The target has been identified, there is an attempted revolution by Israel Police. They consider the prime minister to be a personal enemy and they are attempting to bring him down," Amsalem told Army Radio.

Alsheich claimed that a "powerful figure" had hired “private investigators who had been collecting information against police officers involved in ongoing investigations into the prime minister.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded angrily in a Facebook post to the interview, slamming "the outlandish and false claim that [I] supposedly used private investigators against police officers."
